Brian Austin Green is thankful to be alive. The Beverly Hills, 90210 alum opened up to Us Weekly about the scary car accident he and wife Megan Fox experienced earlier this week. On Friday, the Los Angeles Police Department confirmed to Us that the couple were unharmed after a drunk driver crossed lanes and swiped their Range Rover Thursday.

"It could have ended horribly. We were talking about it today, on the way to run errands. I was saying, 'We're really lucky," Green, 41, told Us at the 6th Annual Night of Generosity Gala in Beverly Hills on Friday, Dec. 5. "He was going 50 miles an hour, and we were going 25 down the street, and we hit head-on. The inertia of that is is life changing. That's life changing for us."

The couple's two sons Noah, 2, and Bodhi, 9 months, were luckily not in the car at the time. Still, Green and 28-year-old Fox (who was in the passenger seat) were shaken up by the incident. "[The driver] hit the air bag. I got out of the car. I shook hands with the man," Green explained. "The cars did their jobs."

"That being said, he came around the corner very fast," the actor continued. "Let alone, I've heard, he had a few drinks." As previously reported, Green called the cops at the scene and the drunk driver was then taken into custody.
